I installed a zipper in a velour robe and it ended up wavy. I took the zipper out and rand a strip of Wash-away Wonder tape along the edge of the seam the zipper was being applied to. I took the backing off and adhered the zipper tape. Smooth and flat installation!

What a great tip. I have some of that in my sewing desk drawer. Now I know just the way to put it to use. Thanks for sharing.

I know this is probably a dumb question, but here goes. Did you sew the zippen in after you placed it on the tape? Thanks for sharing you good idea. jean
